Description

This simple syrup cooks up in minutes. Chances are you already have most of the needed ingredients sitting in your cupboard. If you don’t happen to have maple flavoring, don’t sweat it. Believe it or not, this recipe tastes great even without the maple.

Ingredients

  • 1-½ cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • ½ cups White Sugar
  • 1-½ cup Water
  • ¾ cups Light Corn Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Maple Flavoring
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preparation

In a saucepan, combine the sugars, water and corn syrup; bring to a boil over medium heat.

Boil for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened.

Remove from the heat; stir in maple flavoring and vanilla.

Cool slightly before serving. Serve over pancakes, waffles or French toast.

This recipe makes about 3 cups and can be stored in a bottle in the cupboard just like store-bought syrup.

I made this 2 days ago because I wanted to find a cheaper way to “buy” syrup. This is amazing! It was simple to make and tasted way better than store bought! I will say that the texture is very thin. I even left it on the stove a little while longer to see if it would thicken up but it never did. Honestly though, I can deal with the texture because it tastes so good and is so much cheaper than store bought (especially when you buy the ingredients in bulk, like I do). Thanks for sharing!

I prefer straight-up maple syrup on my waffles, but being out of it, I decided to try this. Although the taste isn’t nearly the same, it’s still very very good and definitely worth making again!

Thanks for this recipe! I was out of syrup this morning and remembered seeing it here. This was better than store-bought and is another great recipe to use the maple flavoring I bought for Ree’s cinnamon rolls (also delicious!). Thanks again!

Thank you!!!! My search for a homemade syrup that everyone in my family enjoys has now come to an end!! I have been searching for almost a year and have tried many recipes–all of which my husband disliked. Until now. . . thank you again!

I have made this syrup three times now because it’s quick and easy, and just like the recipe advertises, I always have all the ingredients in my cupboard. One change I’ve made is to reduce the water from 1 1/2 cups down to 1 cup. This makes it perfect.

This is delicious! I made it this morning and it is way better than store bought syrup(which I’m not crazy for)
It’s sweet but not too sweet and I thought the maple flavor was perfect.
As far as the consistency, I thought it was perfect too. Not too thin and not too thick. I did boil it a little longer than 5 minutes (I forgot about it) and it didn’t seem to affect the results.
Thanks so much for a great recipe. I’m sure this will be in my pantry from now on. :)
